Starting your own Business
Business mentoring and support is an essential component of New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS). NIES business mentors are people with proven business acumen and experience in marketing, finance, accounting or other relevant business skills. As a NEIS participant you will recieve NEIS business mentoring for the first year of operation of your business, including assistance and advice about organisational, financial and marketing issues to help develop your business.
Your NEIS mentor will meet with you face-to-face a number of times during this first year of operation to help maximise the potential success of your business. If you have been assessed as highly disadvantaged, or are an Indigenous Australian, NEIS can provide you with additional mentoring and support to ensure you have the best chance of getting your business off the ground.
